Sapling Press


We’re a letterpress design + print shop, founded in 2003, and grounded in the steel city of Pittsburgh. If you walked through our door right now, you’d catch us manning the presses, answering emails, packaging products, taking coffee orders, and chatting about everything from home renovation to our latest Netflix obsession. Our lines of greeting cards and stationery keep us busy on the daily, but it’s not our only gig. We turn out everything from custom invitations to business cards, host events, and offer classes several times throughout the year. Idle hands, ya know.

The shop houses four presses, seven lovely ladies, the occasional furry friend, and a playlist that just won’t quit.

Want more of a backstory? Can do. I started this business while working as a graphic designer in Baltimore. I set type for four hours in the home studio of a local printer and my fate was sealed. Since then I’ve wanted to do nothing else. The shop has moved five times since I purchased my first press, and with each move it’s become a bigger and better version of itself, all thanks to a dedicated crew, awesome clients, hustlin’ reps, mad talented collaborators, and a long list of family and friends who support us like it’s their job. I can’t thank them enough, and I thank you for taking the time to check us out.
